The IST Aluminium Backplate is made from type 6061 aluminium for its strength to weight ratio and at 0.8kg (1.76lb), this plate is ideal for warm water diving or travelling, when less weight is better.
Being the heart of a technical buoyancy system, all IST back plates are press formed individually and all edges on both sides are deburred and rounded to avoid cutting the harness. Apart from the 5cm (2”) slots for the harness and crotch strap, there are 10 additional perimeter holes for mounting equipment such as stage
bottle, torches etc. There are also 3 sets of holes, each 11 inches apart, along the centre of the plates for attaching the single tank adaptor or twin tank bands.

If you change your mind, it doesn’t fit, or you become inflicted with buyer’s regret - that's OK!
